The deputy of the mayor of Nikolaev Alexander Zhenzherukha reported to our edition that drivers of city minibuses wouldn't strike if there were no excesses from GAI. Thus he considers that the city hall in this situation isn't guilty.

For example, crossing a railway crossing in the Ship district of the city, the driver can get to such situation that starts crossing moving on green light, and red light lights up just when it is on rails and has to stop crossing moving. Alexander Zhorzhevich tells that in this case the driver becomes casual the violator and the State traffic inspectorate, despite of everything, all the same fines it in full.

"And what made GAI? " - Alexander Zhorzhevich, - "Moreover added, complaints on the city authorities from citizens weren't. The state traffic inspectorate started putting pressure on drivers therefore this strike and occurred".
